BBC America has posted a teaser trailer for the upcoming new episodes of Doctor Who, featuring Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor and Karen Gillan as his new companion, which you can view below.

It's not a series of clips from the episodes, but rather a kind of homage to past episodes and, especially, villains, such as the stone angels from the 2007 episode "Blink," which happens to have been written by Steven Moffat, Doctor Who's new show runner.

It also showcases, at least for a bit, the chemistry between the two new, attractive young leads. Don't know about you, but as much as we miss David Tennant, we're still very psyched to see this new Doctor. (And what do you think of that new TARDIS-inspired logo?)

The new Doctor is in this spring on BBC America.
